Paris Hilton's 21st Birthday Party

What’s perhaps most impressive about Paris Hilton’s decade of defining outfits throughout the early 2000s is that she did it all without the help of a stylist. “People would send me things or I would go down to 8th Street to Patricia Field’s and then over to Hotel Venus,” Hilton once told W. In fact, it was Hilton herself who single-handedly invented all the iconic trends that came back over a decade later, from Juicy Couture tracksuits to rhinestones and Von Dutch trucker hats. And when she wasn’t stepping out in mall designers, she was dressing up for a night out on the town. Kendall Jenner, in fact, recreated Hilton’s 21st birthday outfit (one of three) for her own celebration a few years back. And who can forget Hilton’s very miniature mini skirts and iconic statement t-shirts bearing bold phrases like, “Got blow?” Thanks to her, there was never a dull moment on a 2000s red carpet or front row.
